People CAN be so mean! I think they are just jealous that you look great and feel great ๐Ÿ™‚

As long as your doctor says you’re healthy, I wouldn’t worry about anyone else’s comments. Sorry though, they suck!

I am sorry =[ People can be so mean, but don’t let them rain on your parade! If you are doing it the healthy way and feel great about yourself, don’t let them get to you! You’ve obviously put a lot of effort into your new lifestyle change and are reaping the benefits, and don’t let people’s insensitive comments bring you down. Keep doing what makes you feel good on the inside and outside honey =]

People (especially women from my experience) can be very jealous and spiteful.  They are just mad that you look good and they are still scarfing cheeseburgers.  Let the haters keep on hating and do you!  Congrats on the weight loss!

unsolicited advice is everywhere, it sucks but it’s true.

Some friends might be concerned about your exercising though…2 hours a day 7 days a week can constitute (depending on your situation) an “eating disorder” because it is obsessive behavior revolved around maintaining or losing weight. 

NOT saying that is you, but trying to look at why someone close to you might say something like that.

Congrats to you and your weight loss! I am happy that you are feeling more conifdent. Like the other bees said they are just being spiteful hateful jealous women. Kill them with kindness and the next time they ask or try to give you something just say “No thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ Im good ๐Ÿ™‚  I give you mad props lady! Losing weight the HEALTHY way is so hard.

First and foremost, congratulations on your weightloss! I have lost alot of weight myself and it comes to a point when people (especially women) might get a bit jealous. I think that if it is what you’re saying, you’re eating ok, doing your exercise, and feel good about yourself, don’t care about what anybody else says. As long as you are doing it the healthy way it’s good for you, anyone that wants to feel good about themselves.

People are horrible sometimes.  I haven’t lost a ton of weight but I have had people make comments about the way I look.  I’m a 4/6, I’m not wasting away people!

I don’t think they’re being mean.  I think they care about you.  20 pounds in 3 months is a good amount of weight to lose so quickly, especially when you’re doing it through intense physical activity that is impossible to maintain long term.  It is true that when you change your body that quick and lose weight that fast that you tend you yo-yo and gain back more than you weighed before.  I’ve done it too many times to count and I did it the same way you did.  They’re just looking at your best interests.  You seem to be doing it right with the eating (assuming you’re getting the necessary calories daily), but the exercising would be worrisome to me.  It’s excessive.

Ive never met a doctor who recomended working out that much every day. Your doing great in your weight loss so to prevent injury maybe work out 6 days a week and use lots of cross training. Women do get jealous so take everything into consideration but consider the possibility of emotions.

@Legallyblondiebride:   I WISH I had the stamina to work out like that! Just make sure your doctor is monitoring your diet and exercise so you truly know you are doing what’s best. You can be fat and healthy or you can be skinny and healthy, so having the ok from your doc will help you know you’re right and the naysayers are wrong!

As someone who has been on both sides, isn’t it “funny” how being called too skinny and too fat hurt the same?  I agree, as long as you are doing it the right way, it’s fine.  Do give your body a break, though!  7 days a week is a lot!
